Proof that the remaining 10% is worth dying for here:

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Space Quest, all of which have been signed. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in the 'fic, based on who recommended it. No-name recommendations will be Zapped!. Nobody would back up the rec. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be.


Do warn when a fanfic may head into sexually explicit or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

Authors and Websites

Roger Wilco's Fan Fiction Library

  • Recommended by Jeysie
  • A subsection of Roger Wilco's Virtual Broomcloset, which contains the lion's share of existing Space Quest fanfics in general.

Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

Burn, Xenon, Burn by Diane LaJuene

  • Recommended by Jeysie
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A three-part story that explores Roger Jr's life from childhood up to the end of the SQ4 game. What is it like being not only the son of a janitor and an ambassador but a would-be artist on a world that's given up on art and culture as being unhealthy and "unrealistic"? Would you fight to save it, or would you celebrate it dying? Maybe even both?

  • Warning: As you might've guessed from the synopsis, it's a very, very, very Dark Fic.

Future's History Parts I & II by Daniel Stacey

  • Recommended by Jeysie
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A two-part novel which also tells about the events of SQ4 from Roger Jr's perspective, starting from after the events of SQ4 and showing the fight to rebuild Xenon. This one's a lot more upbeat, and involves politics, time travel, aliens, rebirths, and a best friend with a dark secret that might shake his and Roger Jr's friendship to the core.
  • Comments: Written by the same fellow who penned the excellent King's Quest II Fan Remake.

The Middle of the Night by Allronix

  • Recommended by Jeysie
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Everyone thought that Roger Wilco was just a bumbling ditz good for nothing other than sleeping his shifts away in broom closets. They didn't know the things he'd seen and survived, or how they haunted him sometimes at night...

  • Comments: A rather dark and interesting little introspective look at the not-so-comedic sides of our bumbling hero and his adventures.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

None yet.

Crossover Fics

Quest Cross by Allronix

  • Recommended by Jeysie
  • Vanished from the internet. Please post a link if found.
  • Synopsis: Upon finding an ancient power source and some dark allies on the low-tech world of Serenia, the insidious Sludge Vohaul returns to wreak havoc upon the universe. But fortunately, a chance meeting between Roger Wilco and the Royal Family of Daventry means the forces of Good might stand a chance of fighting back...
  • Warning: Incomplete and lamentably likely to stay that way, but still worth reading for what is there.
  • Comments: Almost worth reading solely for managing to combine the utterly dissimilar King's Quest and Space Quest series in a logical and believable way. Then add on the entertaining interactions from the various "adventuring duos" the fic sets up (Alexander & Roger, Graham & Beatrice, and Stellar & Rosella) and the involvement of a number of secondary characters from both series, and what's there is an incredibly fun ride.

How well does it match the trope?
